WOOLLIE BIRTHDAY & A GIVEAWAY

Today is Woollie Wanderings 1st birthday! (I actually registered the blog in September 2006 but it took me till January 2007 to get it started). I wasn't sure what I expected when I started my blog - to keep friends far and near up-to-date with my escapades was really what it was all about, but now I know so much more - that it is a doorway to a new world - one filled with kind people, wonderful inspiration and generous praise.

I want to thank one and all for making my first year in blogging so special - to all the commentors and readers a big THANK YOU!

I had been planning a giveaway, and whilst I will still giveaway something crafty (so leave a comment and I'll chose someone on Friday!) I also decided that I wanted to give a gift to the very first person who left a comment on my blog.

Roll up, roll up -  Applehead - a small gift will be heading your way soon as a thank you for being the first person to leave a comment on  my fledgling blog way back when.........
